How to take part
An incomplete comic chosen by the forum-moderators will be attached to the competition thread, which will have to be downloaded by the participant. It is in JPEG/PNG format.

Using an image editing application of your choice, add captions to the raw comic and create a flow. Modfications can convey any message - but should be text based (Speech bubbles are allowed). Other restrictions here are that you stick to the rules outlined below.

An example of how it's done

This is what a raw comic would look like:

You can hack it and submit it like the following image

After you are done with your modification save the image in JPEG/PNG format and attach it to to the relevant thread tagged [entries].

Once the time period for entries has expired, all entries will be displayed on a new post tagged [voting] where members of the forum will be able to vote for TWO of their favorite entries.

The entry with the highest number of votes will be announced as the winner.

Entries will be open for 15 days from the start of the competition during which time all entries will have to be submitted. After the 15 day entry period, entries thread will be locked and entries will not be accepted.

Following this, the voting will start on a new thread tagged [voting], and will span another 10 days. The winner will be announced at the end of the 10 days of voting.

Multiple entries can be submitted per participant.

A maximum of two votes per forum member is allowed. Creation of multiple accounts to rig voting will be detected and dealt with.

Stick to caption-based modifications only. This is not a freestyle image hacking game like hack-the-pic.

The use of another participants' work is forbidden.

The entries should be solely the original work of the participant.

By submitting your image to the competition, you are giving Gamer.LK and its staff all rights to the image, including the right to display, distribute and modify the image.

The Gamer.LK staff have the final say in deciding whether an image is suitable or not, and have the right to remove any entries deemed unsuitable.

Going against any rules will cause the contestant to be disqualified.
